A loyal dog, disoriented in the middle of the traffic, was looking for help for her human father who was lying on the ground, and finally managed to find her
Milagro Muñoz Araya and her husband had stopped her car near the veterinary hospital where she works in Guapiles, Costa Rica, when they saw a disoriented little dog running back and forth across the road, dodging cars. . The loyal dog was seeking help for her human father.
Milagro told The Dodo:
When I saw that the dog was running around very nervously, I knew that he was trying to tell us something. So my husband and I parked the car to see what happened to the poor dog.
The dog led them to a man who was lying on the ground with a cane next to her. He looked like he was very hurt.
Loyal dog runs through traffic looking for help
My husband and I immediately ran towards the man, and the dog ran with us to where the man was and she began to lick him non-stop. My husband called the ambulance.
At this time, she had started to rain, but the dog stayed by her owner’s side.
She never left him.
He was conscious, but badly beaten. According to people who came to the place, they indicated that the man has leg problems, he lives alone with the animal. Perhaps because he has trouble walking, he lost his balance and fell.
When the ambulance arrived, paramedics lifted the man onto a stretcher and loaded him into the vehicle. The dog went up too.
He immediately went straight to where his owner was in the ambulance and he lay on his chest as you can see in the photos. The paramedic let the dog say goodbye to her owner, but then we had to bring her because she was not allowed to stay in the ambulance.
Finally, the man was transferred to the hospital and a neighbor took the dog to his house, while the man recovered.
Then, Milagro posted photos of the incident on Facebook, and the post went viral, taking her by surprise.
A few days later, the woman returned to the same neighborhood to check on the man, who had been released from the hospital. A man took her to the humble place where the man lives with the dog
Milagro introduced herself to the man, whose name is Don Jorge and his dog is called ‘Chiquita’.
I was very happy to see that they were doing well. But at the same time, I was sad to see them living in such horrible poverty. The man has a problem with his leg, which prevents him from walking to buy medicine from him. He has a neighbor with a big heart who gives him food and washes her clothes.
Don Jorge not only has his neighbor, but he also has Chiquita. If Don Jorge ever gets into trouble again, Milagro is sure that Chiquita will do everything possible to rescue her owner.
Since Milagro is a veterinarian, she decided to do something else to help: she will take Chiquita to her clinic to be spayed, vaccinated and dewormed, and to do blood tests.
I think it is very important that people know these kinds of stories so that people take care of animals. Animals are helpless, kind-hearted beings who need us to take care of them. And they must not be mistreated.
